so i am not sure how clear it is, but the picnic tables are all lined up in a row, i do not know what kind of seating you call this, it just reminds me of an octoberest beer festival kind of thing going on. So I am thinking long eclectic centerpieces, balloons, candy, books covered in blue and orange book covers, etc… just want to get some ideas… So, any ideas?

Are the tables all pushed up against each other, so it’s like one continuous table? I would call that “family style” seating. And I love the look of one continuous runner! I just saw a picture of one here (the first photo in the thread):
what’s your “dream” wedding?
I also like the idea of a continuous line of low centerpieces as shown in the same photo – alternating glass bottles, small containers with flowers, and candles, for example.

Maybe books, candles, and fruits?

Love the long burlap runner.
You can also do amazing things with ribbon
Here’s another long runner-topped off with gorgeous chandeliers
Here’s a colored cloth with long wooden boxes for centerpieces and mismatched china
another burlap runner with simple flowers
LOVE this rustic tablescape with old barnboard
Look at this simple idea using green apples
Very inexpensive kraft paper and paper flowers

Thanks! thats it! Family Style Seating! i couldn’t think of the name of it. there will be balloons involved, glass is not allowed as it is a park… so I am starting to save plastic peanut butter jars and other plastic jars/containers to use, i will figure something out, but i love pictures:) so keep em coming:)

@Ronneykay: Oh, I think it would look very cool to alternate balloons with jars of flowers along the length of the center of the tables! At even intervals, but maybe at various heights.
@julies1949: LOVE the paper flowers, and the brightly colored chairs – how lucky was that bride to score those?

@NotYourTypicalBride: the wedding with the colorful chairs was featured in the National Post. The bride was very clever. She used the colors of the chairs for the colors of the wedding because no other color scheme really would have worked with the colorful chairs in their community hall.

Also, Since no glass is allowed you could cover your plastic jars in twine like this:
Or fabric and even lace works great too.

@julies1949: I totally would have chosen the venue based on those chairs. 🙂
@BurlapAndLace: Love the birch idea!
